The ACCM is committed to achieving excellence in academic medicine, providing outstanding medical care, recruiting the brightest and most talented residents, and offering research opportunities in both basic science and clinical realms. With the addition of Dr. Wilson to our world-class faculty, we can continue to realize these goals.

The expertise and leadership of Dr. Wilson will be a valuable asset to our team, and with Dr. Wilson in his new role as hospital director of Critical Care Services and senior faculty at UC Irvine’s Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care, we can continue to provide world-class care to the people of Orange County and beyond.
